It is great for most English styles where you want a bit of body leftover however I have had it leave a bit too much residual sugar when it hits the lower end of it's % attenuation, ending up with a very sweet beer. I particularly like this strain for lower starting gravity beers and sweet stouts where a lower % attenuation is ideal to leave more body in the beer. The esters are very pleasant when kept in check with fermentation temperature and it flocculates very well leaving a crystal clear beer straight out of primary.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e \u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv class=\"views-row views-row-2 views-row-even\"\u003e\n\u003cdiv class=\"review\"\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003e“\u003cspan class=\"field-content\"\u003eAWESOME STRAIN\u003c\/span\u003e”\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cdiv class=\"spec\"\u003e\n\u003cstrong\u003eBy:\u003c\/strong\u003e \u003cspan class=\"field-content\"\u003ejared\u003c\/span\u003e | \u003cstrong\u003eDate:\u003c\/strong\u003e \u003cspan class=\"field-content\"\u003eNov., 4th 2015\u003c\/span\u003e | \u003cstrong\u003eBeer(s) Brewed: \u003cspan class=\"field-content\"\u003eblond\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/strong\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e \u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cdiv class=\"field-content\"\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eUsed this yeast for a few batches, its great.

The mash and fermentation profiles were nearly identical for these beers. We mashed at ~150-153 degrees for 60 minutes. We made a 0.75L starter on a stir plate for both. Both ales had a O.G. of 1.054 and reached a F.G. of 1.009 after 7 days. BeerSmith estimated a F.G. of 1.017 based on a 66.5% apparent attenuation but we got ~82% attenuation.

GOOD MOST OF THE TIME

By: THale86 | Date: Jan., 17th 2016 | Beer(s) Brewed: Sweet Stout, Northern English Brown, Ordinary Bitter

 

I like this yeast on the whole. It is great for most English styles where you want a bit of body leftover however I have had it leave a bit too much residual sugar when it hits the lower end of it's % attenuation, ending up with a very sweet beer. I particularly like this strain for lower starting gravity beers and sweet stouts where a lower % attenuation is ideal to leave more body in the beer. The esters are very pleasant when kept in check with fermentation temperature and it flocculates very well leaving a crystal clear beer straight out of primary.

 

AWESOME STRAIN

By: jared | Date: Nov., 4th 2015 | Beer(s) Brewed: blond

 

Used this yeast for a few batches, its great. Golden ales always come out crisp and clear, awesome aroma when fermenting. got to say at least in my experiences with this yeast that its a definate go to.

 

POWER HORSE YEAST

By: Jim | Date: Nov., 1st 2015 | Beer(s) Brewed: English Brown Ale

 

My wife and I have used this yeast twice in variations of a Northern Brown Ale. The mash and fermentation profiles were nearly identical for these beers. We mashed at ~150-153 degrees for 60 minutes. We made a 0.75L starter on a stir plate for both. Both ales had a O.G. of 1.054 and reached a F.G. of 1.009 after 7 days. BeerSmith estimated a F.G. of 1.017 based on a 66.5% apparent attenuation but we got ~82% attenuation. At first we thought our mash tun profile was off in BeerSmith and our mash was more efficient, but even after adjusting parameters for a new mash tun we got, it repeated itself.

We're not complaining as this yeast makes an AMAZING English Brown Ale but I wonder if anyone might be able to pinpoint what would cause this yeast to attenuate so much higher then reported.
